If you are a high school senior, college student, and/or between the ages of 18-25 pursuing studies at a vocational or trade school, you may be eligible for the Shawn Carter Scholarship.
The Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation is unique in that it offers scholarships to single mothers, children who attend alternative schools, students who have earned a GED, students with grade point averages of 2.0 and students who have previously been incarcerated, etc., but desire a higher educational opportunity.
This group is generally not the recipient of college scholarships and is typically ignored by the Board of Education, points out the foundation's organizers.
All applicants must be a US Citizen and complete the on-line application no later than the published deadline date, which is May 31, 2013.
The Shawn Carter Foundation offers scholarship opportunities to any under-served student across the United States who desires a higher education. One of the key questions asked by the Foundation when students apply for a scholarship is: What are your plans to give back to the community?
This scholarship is open to the public. Please apply before the May 31 deadline.
